Hazardous conditions put shoppers at risk

Stores are generally much less busy following the holiday shopping season. There are still plenty of shoppers out and about, though. With smaller crowds and less traffic, it probably seems like an ideal time to run errands. That does not mean it is any safer to do so. Most people in Minnesota consider shopping to be a pretty safe activity, but hazardous conditions both in and outside of stores put everyone at risk for shopping injuries.

Attractive nuisances can lead to premises liability lawsuits

Parents nationwide, including Minnesota, know all too well how quickly the curiosity of young children or toddlers can propel them toward harm. The instincts of kids to explore can take them to dangerous places that intrigue and excite them. That is why there are attractive nuisance laws and premises liability lawsuits that aim to protect the little ones.

Proposed policy improvements aimed at negligent property owners

Throughout several areas of Minneapolis, the need for housing often forces tenants to choose between personal safety and affordability. Many lower income tenants refrain from complaining about negligent property owners in order to keep a roof over their heads. However, proposed revisions of the Code of Ordinances may bring relief to those most in need of improved living conditions.

Winter weather and ice formation can cause hazardous conditions

Those who live in Minnesota are experienced with the unpleasant conditions that accompany the long, cold winters. While most property owners and tenants are well-versed in the chore of removing snow and ice from their sidewalks and driveways, icy formations overhead may not merit as much of their attention. However, as one local family recently discovered, melting and refreezing icicles can create extremely hazardous conditions.
